Advances in Global Climate and Atmospheric Modeling: Perspectives from Yale and Todai
New insight into the origin of monsoons, the dynamics of aerosols and their potential use to cool the globe and how different industries uniquely impact atmospheric warming are the contributions of YCEI researchers at an upcoming forum on Global Climate and Atmospheric Modeling, Friday, September 21, at Kroon Hall. Researchers from Tokyo’s Todai University round out the 5-person forum with talks on the radiative forcing of aerosols in East Asia and a model of 100,000-year glacial-interglacial cycles.
Please join us for a special one-day forum featuring talks on recent advances in the science of atmospheric chemistry and physics and the modeling of global climate, jointly sponsored by the YCEI, The University of Tokyo (Todai) and the Todai-Yale Initiative.
